In an industry, the numbers mean everything. Nobody cares what the music heralds, it’ll be enough if it’s fun, cool and bought by people. And, in an industry, music is not bought because it is good; it is good, because it sells well. Hip-hop as an industry is but a sub-genre of pop music, that is all.

Downloads are killing the music business.There’s enough anti-streaming venom in music to kill the industry. Whether it be artists angry at Spotify payouts or labels still holding on to CDs and trumpeting downloads to investors, neither can see that streaming has already won. With Pandora. With YouTube. It’s what the customer wants, but the customer is too stupid to realize it.

Process is not progress. Irene Dorner said: “Women do funny things. They do things like work very hard and expect to be noticed for it—and they’re not, because it doesn’t work like that.” Knowing the difference between hard work and smart work is elemental to success. Our clients don’t give us credit for working hard. We get credit for getting great results. It’s up to us to shine a light on those great results. No one is going to do it for us
